Chino Hills – The City of Chino Hills has announced that a new drop off zone for students will be available at the Community Center, come Mon., May 12.
Ayala High School students will now be allowed to be dropped off at the Chino Hills Community Center parking lot for the remainder of the school year. Motorists may enter the parking lot at Bulldog Way, turn left to the southern parking lot, and exit south on Peyton Drive. Safety will be enhanced if motorists follow this one-way traffic flow during drop-off and pick-up periods. City officials will evaluate the effectiveness of the use of this parking lot as an ongoing student drop-off zone.
In more news, the City of Chino Hills’ 14th Annual Water Conservation Design-A-Sign contest recently honored its winners. This year’s theme was “Catch Those Drops, Don’t Let Them Get Away,” and local children designed water conservation signs to promote awareness and learn about this precious natural resource.
With a total of 267 entries, two grand prize winners were awarded. Calvin Park, a 6th Grade student at Oak Ridge Elementary won an X-Box 360 with Kinect; and Myra Zhan, a 10th Grade student from Ayala High School won an iPad Mini. The Chino Valley YMCA donated one-year Youth Facility Memberships, valued at $75, to all winners, who also received water conservation backpacks filled with various goodies, tickets to Harkin’s Theatres, and a $10 Gift Card for Cold Stone Creamery.
Winning posters for 2014 have been made into permanent Water Conservation Street Signs, now on display on streetlight poles along City Center Drive at the Chino Hills Government Center. The signs will also be moved to the winning students’ schools before being permanently installed at various locations throughout the City.
